I want to get a post in here, but I have list upon list to complete today! So here goes and let's hope it all goes smoothly.
First of all, Yup, I had a birthday this weekend.
Yup, I fully intend to live by the above rule.
Yup, although I was assured that it was only going to be The Red Hot Mama's at our monthly dinner on Saturday night, there was a Surprise Party with many of my nearest and dearest in attendance. I was a little shakey out of the gate, but with such wonderful people in the room it was soon easy to settle into an evening filled with fun, love and laughter.
Because I still haven't grown up (see above) I was excited about presents!
There was yarn and pampering gifts. Lots of pampering gifts!!
A little light reading...with some wonderful editing done by EK.
The Red Hot Mama's have started a tradition that for the Milestone Birthdays (although 40 is the only other milestone anybody has celebrated) we put together a basket filled with the birthday girl's favourite things. The presentation was lovely, the contents beyond thoughtful and so of course...
....there was chocolate and coffee. (Sorry, I forgot to flip the photo...it's all about time!)
